EDITORS’ NOTES

A collection of intimate stories about love, loneliness, and redemption, The Lumineer’s second full-length album has all the heart-on-sleeve hallmarks of their breakthrough debut. But here, the character-driven vignettes—about the lonely new girl in town, Ophelia, and the Egyptian queen of the title—feature thoughtful, luxurious production. The combination is powerful; with churning guitars and sweeping emotion, these are beautiful stories to tell.

The Lumineers

MattyL.,

I love everything about this band

It's not bad! It shows it has potential!

Giotto6670,

Their Baaack! This is coming from someone who just thinks they're alright! They aren't bad but I also think their not that impressive as people make them out to be!
The 1st single isn't bad! It references their old style in their 1st album but promises for something new, different & not tame! It's also not slow but not super fast like their old stuff.
So once again; It's not bad.
But I'm not totally convinced & sold yet! But it makes me a lot, a lot more interested to see what is yet to come from about 3 years since their debut album! I give it 3 1/2 stars! I want to give it 4 stars (I really do, honesty); but we've only heard 1 of 15 songs yet! We can't/shouldn't judge 1 song off the album! Anything can happen/change!
And since they took a hiatus and essentially were out of the spotlight where no one knew what they were doing or would do! It'll be interesting to see/learn/hear what they've found and created and how they have grown as artists to make something amazing!
It has great potential though! And overall everyone should be interested & excited to see what April will bring!
And honestly I just wanted to review it since I know everyone will be talking about it sometime between now and when it's finally released! I wish them the best of luck though too & a shout out to her since she's from Denver! Yeaaa! Be excited!

About The Lumineers

The Lumineers, a folk-rock trio out of Denver, Colorado, deliver an acoustic-based Americana sound that touches a lot of stylistic bases, from folk to gospel to heartland rock and the narrative end of country, all with interesting rhythmic twists and turns. The band had its beginnings in 2002 when Jeremiah Fraites lost his 19-year-old brother Josh to a drug overdose. Fraites and his brother's best friend, Wesley Schultz, turned to music to deal with their sorrow, and were soon writing songs and gigging together in the New York area as a duo. After relocating to Denver, the pair met classically trained multi-instrumentalist Neyla Pekarek after placing a craigslist ad for a cellist, and things clicked for the trio, who began playing open-mike nights at the Meadowlark -- a basement club where local songwriters gathered.

The band released a demo EP in 2009, following it with an eponymous EP in 2011. A proper first album, again simply called The Lumineers, appeared from Dualtone Records in 2012. The album was critically praised and its infectious single "Ho Hey," which had long been the centerpiece of the band's live sets, ended up breaking into Top Ten markets globally, eventually going double platinum. The Lumineers crossed and recrossed the globe as they toured in support of their debut, earning a pair of Grammy nominations along the way. With their raised profile, they began branching out in 2014, placing a song on AMC's popular zombie series The Walking Dead and supplying the music for the song "The Hanging Tree," the musical centerpiece of the film The Hunger Games: Mockingjay, Pt. 1.

In April 2016, the Lumineers released their long-awaited follow-up album, Cleopatra. It debuted at number one on the Billboard 200. In 2017, in addition to opening for U2's Joshua Tree anniversary tour, the band released the Record Store Day single Song Seeds, which featured three versions of two songs found on Cleopatra. ~ Steve Leggett
